If you are wondering how Subaru's Symmetrical AWD system works and why it is so superior to competing systems, take a look at the overview below!

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: How It Works

This system creates an even distribution of power, rather than the typical slip-then-grip alternative used by other brands. Here's how this advanced system works, to keep you out of harm's way wherever you may drive.

  • Traction & Power: Power is automatically sent to all four wheels simultaneously and evenly. The result? Maximum traction and acceleration when you need it most, even when you didn't realize you did.
  • Durability & Efficiency: The engine is mounted directly in-line with the drivetrain, which allows for a seamless transfer of power to all of the wheels. Less components increases fuel efficiency as well as engine durability.
  • Control & Stability: The simple and balanced design of Symmetrical AWD greatly improves grip on the road. This optimized control and stability will help keep traction and also help avoid understeering and oversteering.
  • Working Together: Active safety features such as Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Vehicle Dynamics Control works together with this system, and delivers a confident and consistent drive for your enjoyment.
